Thanks to an extraordinary performance from Michelle Williams and an exceptionally deft hand from her director, this low-budget and loping little film is a genuine heartbreaker.
I'm disappointed at how much this film has been overpraised. Most of the shooting is out-of-focus and many of the scenes are meandering and lack energy. Michelle Williams might have been good with more direction. As it is, she looks stiff and forlorn, but not in an intentional way.
